LinkedIn decides to remove Stories from its social network

Sep 02, 2021 - 9:43 AM - by Reverend
LinkedIn announced efforts in 2020 to implement Stories — a feature well known to Snapchat and Instagram users for sharing content that disappears after 24 hours. However, LinkedIn is now giving up on that idea, as the company announced today that LinkedIn Stories will soon be removed from the social network.

The announcement was made on Tuesday by Liz Li, senior director of products at LinkedIn. In a post published on the social network, Li wrote that LinkedIn Stories was designed to provide a “fun and casual way to share quick video updates.” However, as the company studied how users interacted with the feature, LinkedIn is now removing Stories to work on a “new experience.”

The executive says users want more ways to share engaging videos with their followers, not just content that disappears after a while. While this “new experience” is unknown at this point, it seems that LinkedIn is working on new ways to let its users share videos.

LinkedIn Stories will remain available to users until the end of September, when the feature will be completely removed from the social network. Interestingly, LinkedIn is not the first social network to give up the Stories feature this year. Twitter shut down its Stories-like platform “Fleets” earlier this month as the company said that only a few users were using it.

At the same time, the popular video-focused social network TikTok recently announced that it is implementing Stories for its users. Other social networks such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Pinterest, and YouTube are also still offering Stories-like platforms.

Samsung announces 200-megapixel phone camera sensor

Sep 02, 2021 - 9:37 AM - by Reverend
Samsung has announced a 200-megapixel image sensor intended for smartphone cameras, by some distance the highest resolution phone camera sensor ever made. The ISOCELL HP1 has 0.64μm pixels and can bin 16 of them at once for the equivalent of a 12.5-megapixel sensor with 2.56μm pixels.

Samsung calls the HP1’s pixel-binning technology “ChameleonCell.” The four-by-four 12.5-megapixel setting is intended for low-light usage, but it can also capture full 200-megapixel resolution photos, or use a two-by-two binning technique for 50-megapixel images.

The two-by-two binning mode also lets the HP1 capture 8K video. Samsung says it’s capable of shooting 8K without cropping, although standard 8K (7,680 x 4,320) is less than 50 megapixels.

Samsung is also introducing a new sensor called the ISOCELL GN5. It’s a 50-megapixel sensor with 1.0μm pixels, and Samsung says it’s the first 1.0μm-pixel sensor to integrate its Dual Pixel Pro technology. That basically makes it sound like a smaller version of the 1.4μm-pixel GN2, which was the biggest phone camera sensor available when it made its debut on Xiaomi’s Mi 11 Ultra this year.

Samsung hasn’t said when either new sensor will be going into mass production, but samples are currently available for phone manufacturers.
